Review: Camtasia Studio screen capture

Camtasia Studio is for any individual, SMB, or enterprise needing to create desktop screen captures for training, PR, or any other purpose.

Camtasia Welcome Screen

This screen starts up any time you open Camtasia and allows you to open existing projects as well as view tutorials.

You can add helpful text to your screen casts by clicking the Callouts link in the task list.

Captions
